Save Your Lonely

How do you know when it feels right?

I often wondered to myself,
Whenever we would say
Goodbye.

You would leave, and the sun
Would hide its shine from me
And the rain would shower me
In colorless woe.

But then I would still feel your
Warmth on my skin,
And hear your poetry in my
Thoughts
And my question would be answered
At once.

Before I met you,
I thought I was doomed,
To walk this path with
Nothing but my ghosts to
Haunt my every step.

I thought that a sad and broken
Soul like mine,
Was unworthy to be redeemed.
Unworthy to be loved.

But, you took me by the hand,
And led me to a stream,
You kissed me under the moonlight
And showed your heart to me.

You asked me to save your lonely,
And I did
Because in truth,
You saved mine first.

You asked me to bring you back
To life,
And I did,
Because you gave me a reason
To live again.

You made me believe that
We, two damned creatures,
Hearts blackened and burnt
From time,
Could find peace in the absence
Of tears.

We could finally get what we’d
Been searching for.

We could finally be free.

Oh, that I would run away with you,
Leave the strings of my
Puppeteers behind.

Soar the night sky with you,
Without the fear of falling
Down.

Even though we are far apart,
And our love is separated by miles,
I still know the sound of your heart
Because it beats for me in my
Dreams.

So until then,
I’ll meet you in the afterglow,
Beyond the veil of roses and
Tears.
And I’ll kiss you more,
Each and every night
So I may never forget
What freedom tastes like.

“I’d run away with you.”
“I know the sound of your heart.”
“Save your lonely”
“How do you know when it feels right?”
“I’ll meet you in the afterglow.”

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
